Manager Ian Holloway has said he remains encouraged by the overall performance despite the loss to Leeds United this weekend, because he feels we deserved a point from the game at least.

Speaking to the official site following the one nil loss, Holloway said he was ‘bitterly disappointed’ with the final result because he felt a draw would’ve been fair on the balance of play.

‘I’m bitterly disappointed that we haven’t got a point. I think our performance deserved more. The only thing that has decided it is a deflected free kick, but for me it is another step forward in terms of the way we played. This is a tough place to come but I felt we dealt with that they threw at us. We couldn’t do one or two things that worked on Tuesday at Birmingham so we had to change the midfield around, which I think caused them some problems.’

Holloway goes on to say that despite going the goal down, we definitely created enough opportunities in the game but we just couldn’t convert the one that we needed to to get something from the match again.

‘If we keep creating these types of opportunities then I strongly believe we will convert them and score some goals. We have two home games coming up now and we need to repeat our last few away performances at The Den. I’m gutted not to be coming away from here with at least a point but that’s the Championship for you. The game was decided on a deflection and for me there are positives to take forward.’

He ends by saying that everybody is desperate to turn our form around at home now and give the fans something to shout about and that’s what everybody in the squad will be focused on.
